Largest Orlando Veteran Job Fair At The Citrus Bowl October 6, 2015

Over 100 Employers, 3,000+ Jobs and On-Site Hiring

September 23, 2015 (Orlando, FL) – On October 6th, 2015, The Orlando VA Medical Center and will hold a Veterans Hiring Fair at the Florida Citrus Bowl.  This special hiring event will cater to all Veterans who are looking for work.  Homeless Veterans and Veterans with background challenges are highly-encouraged to attend.  

The Veterans Hiring Event will take place October 6, 2015 from 10am-2pm at the Citrus Bowl Place, West Concourse, Orlando, FL 32805.  The event will feature over 100 local and national employers seeking to hire Veterans.  Many types of jobs will be available across all sectors.  Veterans in need of employment will have the opportunity to meet in person with employers who are looking to hire. 

“Veterans with great skill sets have a very difficult time transferring those skills to a resume and employers miss great hires because they can’t decipher a veteran skill set,” says Roger Lear, President and Co-Founder of “The only way to get the job conversation going is a live job fair with real jobs. This Veteran’s Job Fair will be a true hiring event because we have some companies that can interview and hire on the spot.  In addition, we will have many Veteran advocate organizations which will be positioned to help homeless veterans and background-challenged veterans.” 

A recent Veterans surge initiative in Central Florida identified 418 homeless veterans.  Other veterans may have background challenges that prevent them from getting a job.  This job fair will have services to address their needs.  For homeless veterans (or anyone in need), Lockheed Martin and Goodwill will be providing clothing for interviewing.  A mobile shower unit will be on site.  For those with background challenges preventing them from getting a job, we will have an Orange County Judge on site to review these issues. 

The community event will be sponsored by Orlando Health, Job Path, Sun Trust and other Veterans advocate organizations.  In addition, will be underwriting this event to make it a free event for both employers and Veterans.  Veterans can get more information on this event at and click on the Vet Hiring Event banner.

With over 100 employers attending, more than 3,000 federal, state, and local jobs are waiting to be filled by Veterans.  All Veterans are encouraged to wear business attire and bring resumes with them. Participating companies include Target Corp., Sunbelt Rentals, WastePro, Hilton, BB&T, Bags, Bright House Networks, UCF and many more.
